The house is set in lovely grounds, very restful on a summers evening. There is a comfortable sitting room too if you get grounded by the weather. There...

We stayed at this beautiful Country House Hotel for 2 nights with 5 other couples attending a nearby wedding. The whole experience was so relaxing - arriving to be served with a pot of tea and freshly made sponge cake!

My wife and I have just spent a delightful couple of days at this exceptional B&B. Clearly no effort has been spared by the owners to decorate and furnish the whole house beautifully. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable with every need provided. We were welcomed with a tray of tea and slices of homemade cake. The atmosphere throughout...

We spent three incredibly comfortable nights at Woodhayes, and did not want to leave! On arrival we were warmly greeted by Dominic who gave us a tour of the facilities and a briefing. The entrance hall is delightful, and the the Guest drawing room is a wonderful place to sit and relax. Each bedroom has a name rather than a...

First rate accommodation, hospitality and service. Very friendly and welcoming with an excellent breakfast. Highly recommended. Based in a nice quiet location but not too far away from town. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again.

We recently had a one night stay at Woodhayes and couldn`t have wished for a better palce to stay.
